I received an email from one of my favorite bloggers (Shay Shull from Mix and Match Mama blog) asking to send her newest cookbook my way. I was expecting to receive it in September, so imagine my surprise when I opened a box to see her beautiful face on the front of her cookbook!
Isn't the cover just gorgeous?
Attached was a sweet little note.
And her publishers even sent a few extra little treats, like these rolled oats....
And the cutest little jar of syrup.
I couldn't wait to dig in.
First, the book is organized by recipes for each month, which I think is a fantastic idea! And of course in the back of the book is an index if you are looking for a particular recipe.
Shay also gives some tips and tricks for cooking, which if you know me, I definitely need!
When you get to the month page, all of the recipes for that section are listed.
I love that Shay includes pictures in kitchen with her cute kids.
And my absolute favorite part of the cookbook is that there is a picture of each and every recipe.
AND a little blurb written by Shay about each dish.
Another cute feature is that there is a quote on each page starting a new section. I am pretty much obsessed with quotes, so this was a hit with me.
If you want Shay's cookbook for yourself, pre-order here.
Shay also has two other cookbooks!
I absolutely love "Eats"! I've already bookmarked some recipes, and I cannot wait to try them!
Thanks so so much to Shay for this sweet package! :)
